Does anyone make the military wife purses from BDU's?

My husband is no longer in the military but I would love to have a bag made from his BDU's.  Do any of you crafty women make them or know someone who does?  I have looked on a few websites but just didn't like what I saw.  If you do, can you please PM me or post pictures and let me know how much you charge and what I would need to send to you?  I am wanting a decent size bag that can carry books.  I would like it to have pink lining.

Thanks in advance!

LOL..my husband comes home so greasy, but he does not work in his jackets, so they are not so bad.

I didn't but, I think the lady that made it for me might have a etsy page.  I will let you know if I come across it. (:

LOL this is what my thought was. All the stuff that ends up on him. more than likely my bag would be permanently flammable. BUT OP I would possibly look on etsy.com. Walmart or Micheals usually has some really easy to follow designs. GOOD LUCK!!

Thank you so much.  I will have to get on Etsy again and see what I can find.  I looked a couple months ago but just didnt see anything that I liked.  Maybe I will have better luck this time.

yeah, I just looked through all of them, and some of them are pretty lame, lol.  I did not see her name though, so she must not sell them on there...sorry.  We are stationed in Germany, so it would probably be a pain for her if she did.  If she does have one, and I over looked it, I will let you know!  She is really awesome, and makes them very sturdy!!  Good luck...I hope you find someone, and you are more then welcome to use mine as an example of what you want.

Thanks!  I will save the picture of yours so I can show people exactly what I am looking for.  I live near an Army base so maybe I will see if they have a group on here to find someone who can make it.  I am not crafty at all or I would try it myself.
